Golden Cauliflower Rarebit

Sounds (and looks!) too Delicious not to share 🙂

food to glow

Cauliflower covered in bubbling, boozy rarebit cheese sauce is hard to resist, especially when the cauliflower is given a boost through a simple brining. Enjoy as a side dish, light lunch or supper. Easy cheesy goodness guaranteed!

Cauliflower covered in bubbling, boozy rarebit cheese sauce is hard to resist, especially when the cauliflower is given a boost through a simple brining. Enjoy as a side dish, light lunch or supper. Easy cheesy goodness guaranteed!Cauliflower is at its very best right now. This nutritious vegetable, its milky-hued curds cradled in a cap of pale sweet leaves, is so achingly on-trend I almost feel silly posting such an old-fashioned recipe. Dear old cheesy rarebit sauce, normally a simple bubbling topping for toast, is however made for cauliflower.

Although delicious as a plain mash or roasted, cauliflower adores strong flavours of aged good cheese, nose-stinging English mustard and deep amber ale.

Warm Summer Rain

Warm

Unhindered,

Rain Falling Sweetly,

Upon our skin,

In the dark night,

Serenely,

Whispering Paradise,

Caressing Gently,

Shower of Lavishness,

Upon Spontaneity,

Unspoken,

Deliberate,

Warm Summer Rain;

How I long for your Touch,

Again

And Again.

Lover

Delight My Senses
With Your every word, My Love,
Send Shivers into the very Heart of me;
With All You Say,
Honeyed Baritone
Singing as Pure Symphony.

Enchant my Spirit
With Your Rapturous Gaze, Beloved,
Pour Passion as the Lover You Long to Be;
One Ever Reaching Stare,
O Heaven’s Masterpiece,
Shall Beguile me for Eternity!

Captivate my Heart
With Your Exquisite Touch, Sweet Lover,
Alluring as None Else can Be;
Fill my Thoughts, My Breath, My Life,
Soul of my Soul,
While, Together, We Embody True Unity.

Unyielding Song – #Inspirational #Poetry

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Love Whispers from Heart to Heart,
From Soul to Soul,
Encouragement and Empowerment
Its Gentle Goal;
Love Cradles with Tenderest Hands,
Love Sings Softly ,
Love Understands,
Love Never Looks away from its Dearest Treasure,
Remembering All,
Forgetting Everything,
Even the steepest Fall;
Love Holds us Carefully,
Compassionate,
True,
Love is Ever Near,
Ever Watchful,
Guarding Me,
Guarding You.
Listen in the Hush of your fretful Heart,
Amidst the chaos this world Imparts,
Hear Love Whispering its Unyielding Song,
Regardless of the deepest, darkest wrong;
Love is Speaking,
Soft and Clear,
If you Long to Remember,
Draw Quietly Near
And Love will Embrace you,
Whispering to your Heart,
Encouragement and Empowerment
Ever to Impart.

Poem: “One by One” (#guestblogger)

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Day by day,
a contortion,
bones out of shape,
out of place,
I stare at a reflection
seeming no less sane than yesterday,
but a whole lot saner than today.
What tomorrow has in wait,
but another contortion,
yet another day,
where a reflection stays,
regardless of the mirror that breaks?

An Easter Prayer

Sweet Heavenly Father,
Holy Lord,
Almighty and Ever Living God,
Creator of our Every Breath,
and
Author of our Every Thought,
We Give Thanks to You with Joyful and Amazed Hearts
On this Most Special Day,
With Family and Friends by our sides
And
Remembered with Great Love,
We Praise You for the Miracle of the Resurrection,
For the Unfathomable Measure of Love
Shared with All of us
Through the Life of Jesus our Saviour,
Through His Passion and Death,
And
Through His Glorious Victory,
Blessings we can never fully Comprehend or Deserve,
Yet which we Receive Today On this Bright Easter,
With All the Love our Hearts, Minds and Spirits
Can Offer.
AMEN

I’ve got to do better.

As I sat through last night’s Good Friday service that I was a part of it occurred to me that I’ve got to be better.  If my preaching truly did justice to the gospel the church I serve would be overflowing with people.  I’ve got to do better, we’ve got to do better.

How did Christ’s sacrifice those many years ago become forgotten?  He died as brutal a death a man can die, he didn’t have to, he chose to out of obedience to his father.  He conquered death so that we could live.  The cold, brutal, painful taste of death was forever taken for those that believe.

Given this it is difficult to understand why people don’t believe, why church and faith are so inconvenient as to be ignored, faith is seen as a crutch and churches close each year.

I’ve got to be better.  I’ve got to find another level to my preaching and ability to pastor to reach those that don’t know Christ, don’t know faith and don’t know his church.
